Some of the most interesting and beautiful chandeliers are those that combine styles and themes, resulting in a hybrid or compositional look that departs from tradition while embracing it at the same time. A chandelier that combines modern electric candles with shades is one example of this approach. Look for a ring of pillar candles encased in a beautiful open drum shade or inside a circle of soldered mirror shards. For a more eclectic look, try a brass Flemish chandelier shaded by gold glass or woven wire mesh. Candles with shades are a perfect choice for contemporary rooms that refuse to follow design expectations.
